Ko Itakura reveals what he wants amid Celtic rumours

Centre-back remains a position of uncertainty for Celtic heading towards the 2022/23 season.

Celtic have been handed Ko Itakura transfer worry

Celtic had been heavily linked with a loan move for Manchester City’s Ko Itakura last summer but he ended up joining Schalke on a temporary basis instead, and ultimately ended up playing a major part in their promotion back to the Bundesliga. This summer, Pep Guardiola’s side are believed to be ready to let the Japanese defender leave on a permanent basis.
